Community singing is like nothing else. We lift each other to a higher place when we take part in music-making with other people. This year’s edition will take place on Sunday evening, August 19, and focus on folk, roots music, and Americana.
“Rise Up Singing” differs from other concerts in that performers are song leaders, not soloists. Every audience member will receive a folio of lyrics, and the words to each song will also be displayed on a large screen. Hundreds of members and friends of B’nai Emunah are expected to attend this annual event.
Leading the singing this year are Synagogue members and professionals, along with special friends of the congregation. B’nai Emunah is at the corner of 17th and Peoria. The singing begins at 7:00 p.m. and the event is free and open to the public. Please note that no reservations are necessary.
Those who’d like to reserve space for a pre-concert meal at 5:45 p.m. should call the Synagogue at (918) 583-7121 or use the link below. The meal will be catered by the Seventeenth Street Deli, B’nai Emunah’s in-house kosher delicatessen. Patrons can look forward to artisanal, house-cured pastrami and corned beef, knishes, Synagogue-baked rye bread, dill half-sour pickles, babka, and all the traditional accompaniments of a Jewish deli experience. Cost for the meal is $18. Tours of the building will be offered at 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. for neighbors and friends who would like to know more about Jewish life in Tulsa. Free valet parking will be available beginning at 6:00 p.m. The Synagogue is at the corner of Seventeenth and Peoria.
